Instrumentation Resource Facility

  

State-of-the-art Biomedical Research Equipment

 

The Instumentation Resource Facility (IRF) is an integral component of the research and teaching mission of the University of South Carolina School of Medicine (USC SOM). Located within the facility are several major pieces of state-of-the-art biomedical research equipment that provide techniques ranging from whole animal through single cell imaging to analysis at the molecular level. The IRF also houses a full range of ancillary equipment that is available for sample preparation. In addition to serving as a resource for acquisition of primary data, the IRF also has the capacity for image enhancement and related data analysis.

 

The mission of the IRF is to provide state-of-the-art biomedical research instrumentation for use in the USC SOM and USC main campus research environments. As time and resources permit, outside use of the facility is also permitted and encouraged. Technical assistance and training are available in most areas of research sponsored in the IRF.
